“Charming and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

Located in a walking distance from the city center. We were welcomed by a night tea and very polite porters. The room was clean and simple in a nice way. The breakfast was OK bu a little bit below the usual Minas Gerais standard. In overall good value for the money and a place I could return to.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

I stayed here for a weekend to get away from work and relax. Hotel Pousada Do Arcanjo was just the place to go. They offer a complimentary breakfast that is a feast. The afternoon tea and snacks takes the edge off hunger until dinner. The rooms are large and embrace the historic attributes of Ouro Preto. They have a lovely garden area. I walked into town rather than using the hotel shuttle. Ouro Preto is hilly with cobblestone streets. If you plan on walking bring comfortable shoes. Out of the 3 hotel I have stayed at in Brazil this one was the best. Hot water right away in the shower, big fluffy towels, and dare I say toilet paper that isn't as thin as tissue paper. A great place.

Stayed August 2012, travelled solo

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

We stayed here for holly week, 3 nights, we had the superior room with view overlooking the valley (beautiful view) I can say it was great overall> service, room (size, bathroom and cleanliness), breakfast and trasport service to center of the city (5min drive) were also excellent.

It was also convenient to be a few blocks from the center of town, as it was a big holiday and the town was somewhat crowded, I liked the hotel being in the uper quieter part of town.

I would come back to this hotel, and suggest it to friends/family if they´re looking for a relaxing getaway.

Being only half a mile away from the center is really an advantage of our hotel since the town can be a bit noisy especially during festivals, which is not uncommon. We compensate it with quietness and the cortesy shuttle service. We appreciate your comments and hope to be of value to you again in the future. Best regards!!!

It was wonderful and comfortable our stay at Arcanjo.Ouro Preto is a cobble stoned with traditional food and many churches to visit.It is a safe town for foreigners travelling with kids . Arcanjo provides a free shuttle bus to the city centre and back to the hotel(please ask about times at the reception,but lets say that it was quite regular).The hotel is a bit far from the busy city centre and was very calming and clean(no baths,only showers).It was exactly what we were expecting.Our 5 years old and our 1 year old were quite welcome there and they loved breakfast time and afternoon tea provided(huge with coffee & tea and cake everyday).I am a brazilian living in Australia for many years,so I am a Portuguese speaker.My husband does not speak Portuguese at all but he were very happy with their English.I will recommend this hotel to you and my friends with no issues.

We are only 900m from the center of town and our quietness and free shuttle service really compensate for that. The service is on demand at a short call (10-15 minutes) by the guests and do not have a fixed schedule. We think this tailor-made service fits best their needs. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to host you and your family again. Muito obrigado!!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2007

If visiting Brasil, Ouro Preto and Mariana are a must. Ouro Preto is an historic intact cobble stoned town with its own delicious cuisine. We stayed in the Pousada do Arcanjo on the mountain rim looking across the town about 1 km up from the town centre. Good to be away from the tourist bussle. The hotel comprised 16 or so rooms. Ours on the upper level, (there are two) was comfortable, a bit rustic, spacious with practical ensuite. Breakfast was excellent, staff very attentive (reasonable amount of English). They run an on-call shuttle service to town centre and restaurants. Roads very steep, do not wear high heels according to my partner. Rating would be 3.5 although hotel claims 4 stars. Only issue was there was no central heating and mid winter inland can be cold. Getting there and hotel arrangements were arranged by a great guide Pedro Paulo (tourguidebrasil - web site) who arranged car transportation between Belo Horizonte airport and pousada (about 2 hrs). Pedro is extremely informative and engaging character. Gave us great hints just off the tourist beat and arranged special beakfast with hotel for our early departure. Took the hassle out of travel.

  • Liked — Great location and excellent service.
  • Disliked — No heating,
